The Troy Lee Youth BG 5900 Roost Deflector is a full-featured chest protector that takes the best features from TLD’s adult deflectors and works them into a smaller design that’s made to keep young riders as safe as possible. Right off the bat you can tell that Troy Lee made the GB 5900 with two big things in mind; mobility and protection. Protection comes from the hard plastic impact panels that sit on top of impact absorbing foam. This protection is spread across the chest, shoulders, and down the back until it ends with a pivoting plate that protects the lower back.
That gives the BG 5900 a very respectable amount of protection that stays low profile enough that it can easily be worn under a jersey. More importantly, the 5900’s protection is made of several separate panels that pivot and move with the rider. That means your child can get the deflector’s protection but not have to deal with limited range of motion or an awkward fit that slows him/her down. Toss in the fact that the Youth BG 5900 is fully compatible with most neck braces, and it becomes one of the best youth chest protectors available.
